Artist: Kirby Maurier
Track: Da' Lick
Feat. J NICS
Producer: DJ Premier
Album: Class of '96 EP

Kirby Maurier may be an R&B singer rather than a rapper, but that doesn’t mean she can’t represent (“...represent, represent!”) for classic hip-hop. On newly-leaked EP cut Da’ Lick, the South Florida songbird exhibits a knack for street storytelling that many rappers would envy, backed by one of ‘90s rap’s most memorable instrumentals. Over the pensive, Primo-produced beat from Illmatic inclusion Represent (Sampled, in case you were wondering, from Lee Erwin’s Thief of Baghdad), the singer soulfully outlines her meticulous plan for the heist of a lifetime. Southern N*ggas Ain’t Slow rhymesayer J NICS shifts the narrative into present-tense, chronicling the crime as it unfolds in a breathless closing verse. Do our modern-day Bonnie and Clyde make it out of the caper with their freedom, and their lives? You’ll just have to listen and find out. However the chips fall, one thing’s for certain: both R&B-lovers and hip-hop heads will find plenty to like on Kirby Maurier’s forthcoming EP, Class of ‘96. Watch for the project to arrive on the ‘net this Tuesday, February 14 (aka Valentine’s Day).
